The priority at Perrin et Fils is all about the vine's relationship to the earth, the local fauna and the climes by which it is influenced. The estate vineyards are nourished by a compost of sheep's manure and the previous year's pressings which maintain humus content and microbiological equilibrium. Harvest is all done by hand, only the best grapes are sorted and vinified. Varietals are handled separately, the aim being to preserve the individual qualities of fruit and terroir. Components are transferred to large barrels where a racking disturbs it's repose from time to time. Matured in seasoned French oak casks for a year, the wine prepares itself, evolving and maturing until time for assemblage, a light fining and filtration.
Deep ruby colour with violet hues. The nose is very intense on ripe fruits, toast and vanilla from elegant ageing. Characters of lavender and mint leaf are present, within a deeply cherried and cassis palate, evoking impressions of earth, peppercorn and herbs. The mouthfeel is supple and round exhibiting fine structure and stately tannins. A beautiful Chateauneuf Du Pape, striking the balance between maturity of vine and freshness of fruit.
